  • Who needs sleep? Not Len Kasper

    Who needs sleep? Not Len Kasper
    Despite the fact that he himself plays Wrigley Field 81 times a year, Cubs play-by-play broadcaster Len Kasper said he hasn't given die-hard Cubs fan and Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder any tips ahead of his show Friday. "I don't think I could give...
  • Garza is still here, and I'm wondering why

    It’s Thursday, July 18, and Matt Garza remains a Cub. Fix this, Theo. Change this, Jed. Do the deal, guys. If I were Theo Epstein and Jed Hoyer, I’d do the deal before Friday, when the Cubs resume their drive for next year’s...

    Things will be better in 2015*
    Congratulations, you've almost made it to football season. To get you through the last stretch of unwatchable baseball, I'm going to tease you with a special "visions of the future" column because the present is unbearable. WARNING: The future will...
  • Cubs find a new way not to have pitching

    Cubs find a new way not to have pitching
    Masahiro Tanaka chose the Yankees over the Cubs. Yoenis Cespedes chose the A’s -- the A’s, do you hear me? -- and not the Cubs a couple years ago. What is Theo Epstein doing wrong? Or maybe it’s Tom Ricketts’ fault,...
  • A Dear Tom letter

    A Dear Tom letter
    Dear Cubs Fanboy Owner (and you know who you are, Tom Ricketts), The option to move the team out of Wrigley Field remains open. You should’ve done this on Day One. You should’ve thanked everyone for coming, explained how thrilled you and...

    End of the road for Cubs bright spot?
    One of the brightest spots in what has turned into yet another bleak Cubs season isn't the blue chip first baseman or the erratic $60 million shortstop who tend to get all the headlines. Rather, it's 30-year-old journeyman who has spent more time on the...
  • Cubs have one choice: Girardi

    Cubs have one choice: Girardi
    He's got four World Series rings, roots in the Chicago area and experience navigating the allegedly haunted halls of Wrigley Field. And now that Dale Sveum has been mercifully put out to pasture, it's time to bring Joe Girardi home to Clark and Addison....
  • Mark Gonzales' Cubs mailbag

    I've noticed over the past few years, it seems the Cubs are the only team that continues to deploy a left and right-handed lineup card depending on the starting pitcher. To me, that seems like it would be hard for anyone to get in a groove. Why not just...

    How Cubs might be forced to win arms race
    In their season-opening series, the Cubs improved from 1-for-lordtheystink with runners in scoring position to 3-for-omigawd. In the final game of a series they just lost to the Phillies at home, they improved from 4-for-lordtheystink to 8-for-omigawd...
  • Rizzo, Castro signs of bad things to come?

    Rizzo, Castro signs of bad things to come?
    It’s never too early for a Cubs fan to give up because it’s never too early for the Cubs to give up. The Cubs were again built to stink in 2014, and boy, did the offense ever live down to that in the opener in Pittsburgh. And here’...
  • Two plans for Cubs

    I love the way the Cubs stories are about the fifth starter’s job, like this one about James McDonald’s injury or this one about Chris Rusin’s four good innings. Here’s the question: Aren’t all Cubs pitchers No. 5...
